Jaguars' Ryquell Armstead: Gains seven yards
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Armstead ran for seven yards on two carries and was unable to haul in either of his targets during Sunday's 45-10 loss to the Chargers.

Sunday's 15 offensive snaps were Armstead's second most of the season and most since Week 8. The rookie hasn't seen many chance behind Leonard Fournette this season with just two games of 20 or more yards and one total touchdown, and the final three games don't look much brighter. The Jaguars are on a five-game losing skid during which little has gone right on offense, and Sunday brings a Raiders team that, for all its faults, ranks 10th in the league in opponent yards per carry at 4.1.

Jaguars' Ryquell Armstead: Catches passes in garbage time
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Armstead rushed once for six yards and caught both his targets for 13 yards in Sunday's 33-13 loss to the Colts.

Armstead caught both his passes on the final possession of the game. Even with Leonard Fournette playing a season-low 71 percent of offensive snaps, the rookie fifth-round pick found minimal involvement in the offense during the loss. Armstead remains nothing more than a handcuff option for Fournette.

Jaguars' Ryquell Armstead: Finds production in passing game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Armstead caught all five targets for 65 yards in Sunday's 26-3 loss to the Texans.

Armstead leaked out from pass protection for a 31-yard catch and run in the first half, but he didn't find much more involvement in the offense until the final possession of the game. The rookie fifth-round pick played only nine offensive snaps, so the garbage-time production shouldn't provide any illusions about his actual role in the offense. Leonard Fournette remains the Jaguars' workhorse back, leaving Armstead as a pure handcuff option.

Jaguars' Ryquell Armstead: Goes nowhere on six rushes
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Armstead carried six times for seven yards in Sunday's 29-15 win over the Jets.

It's the most rushing attempts Armstead has seen since carrying the ball eight times in Week 4, but he was unable to find any running room. The rookie fifth-round pick also saw 16 offensive snaps, his highest snap count of the season. Armstead is nothing more than a handcuff option as Leonard Fournette continues to operate as the workhorse back in Jacksonville.

Jaguars' Ryquell Armstead: Sees three carries
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Armstead rushed three times three yards and failed to catch his lone target in Sunday's win over the Bengals.

Armstead was actually fairly involved offensively with three carries and one target considering he played only seven offensive snaps, but he was unable to gain much traction. The rookie fifth-round pick had a productive Week 4 with nine touches for 49 yards and one touchdown, but in the other six games, he has seven total touches for 17 yards. Armstead remains a pure handcuff option as Leonard Fournette continues to dominate the backfield in Jacksonville.

Jaguars' Ryquell Armstead: Gains single yard
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Armstead had a one-yard run during Sunday's 13-6 loss to the Saints.

Armstead had a solid outing in Denver in Week 4, but has just three touches for seven yards in the two games since. Starter Leonard Fournette is averaging an incredible 28 touches per game over the last three weeks, leaving the Temple product with little to do. Until that trend breaks, it'd be dangerous to count on Armstead, even with the league's worst run defense, Cincinnati, on tap for Week 7.

Jaguars' Ryquell Armstead: Returns to minor role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Armstead had one carry for negative-one yard and caught his lone target for seven yards in Sunday's 34-27 loss to the Panthers.

The rookie fifth-round pick had nine touches for 49 scrimmage yards and a touchdown in Week 4, but he once again saw minimal involvement Sunday. Leonard Fournette continues to dominate the backfield reps for Jacksonville and there's been no indication of that changing anytime soon. Armstead will likely only see expanded opportunities if the Jaguars are looking to bleed the clock with the lead.

Jaguars' Ryquell Armstead: Catches first career TD
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Armstead rushed eight times for 42 yards and caught his lone target for a seven-yard touchdown in Sunday's win over the Broncos.

The 22-year-old entered Sunday with only one carry this season and barely saw the field offensively, but the Jaguars finally found success running the ball against the Broncos to provide some opportunities for the rookie. Leonard Fournette still dominated the backfield with 29 carries for 225 yards, so the status quo should remain unchanged, but it's still good to see Armstead find some involvement in the offense.

Jaguars' Ryquell Armstead: No touches Week 2
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Armstead did not have a carry in Sunday's 13-12 loss to the Texans.

The rookie fifth-round pick has only a single carry through the first two weeks of the season as Leonard Fournette is serving as the Jaguars' workhorse back, as advertised. Barring an injury or a drastic change in workload, Armstead isn't worth fantasy consideration.

Jaguars' Ryquell Armstead: Gets single touch
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Armstead had a seven-yard carry during Sunday's 40-26 loss to Kansas City.

Sunday wasn't an ideal start for Armstead as Jacksonville fell behind by multiple scores early, necessitating a surprisingly efficient passing performance from undrafted rookie Gardner Minshew, who came in after Nick Foles broke his clavicle. Look for the Jaguars to help out their young passer with better balance in the coming weeks, which should create opportunities for Armstead behind starter Leonard Fournette, who has had plenty of battles with injuries and ineffectiveness during his two plus seasons. Houston, a stout run defense from 2018, awaits in Week 2.

Jaguars' Ryquell Armstead: Opportunity knocks
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Jaguars placed Alfred Blue (ankle) in IR on Sunday, making Armstead the primary backup running back behind Leonard Fournette.

The rookie out of Temple had been banged up early in camp due to a concussion but emerged healthy and got a major boost to his stock Sunday. Looking at the team's third preseason game, Armstead was the only running back behind Fournette to receive more than one carry, which suggests a lack of competition behind him for carries. Taking into account Fournette's injury history early in his career, Armstead's fantasy stock could continue to grow.

Jaguars' Ryquell Armstead: Totals 17 yards
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Armstead rushed eight times for 18 yards and caught all three of his targets for minus-1 yard in Thursday's preseason game against the Dolphins.

After suffering a concussion in the preseason opener and sitting out last week, Armstead failed to stand out in his return Thursday. The 22-year-old has a chance to stake his claim for the No. 2 running back job with Alfred Blue (ankle) sidelined, but the concussion plus Thursday's performance have led to a limited impact. The good news for the rookie fifth-round pick is that he was the lone running back to receive more than one carry behind starter Leonard Fournette versus Miami.

Jaguars' Ryquell Armstead: Cleared from concussion
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Armstead cleared the concussion protocol, Phillip Heilman of The Athletic reports.

Armstead suffered the injury in the preseason opener and missed the following game. He should be back for Thursday's exhibition against Jacksonville to battle for backup work behind Leonard Fournette. Alfred Blue's expected absence due to an ankle injury frees up more reps for Armstead, Thomas Rawls, Devante Mays and Elijah Hood. Based on the division of playing time the past two weeks, Blue appeared to have a lead for the No. 2 role.

Jaguars' Ryquell Armstead: Could make preseason debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Doug Marrone said Sunday that Armstead is in the final day of the concussion protocol and could play in Thursday's preseason game against the Dolphins, Phillip Heilman of The Athletic reports.

Armstead apparently received good news after returning to practice Saturday. He should continue to practice leading up to the game and could even see additional reps while Alfred Blue is sidelined with an ankle injury. Given that he missed the first two weeks of the preseason, Armstead could be tasked with a sizable workload Thursday against Miami.

Jaguars' Ryquell Armstead: Back at practice Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Armstead (head) returned to practice Saturday, Phillip Heilman of the Athletic reports.

Armstead was unable to play in Thursday's preseason loss to the Eagles as he remained subject to the league's concussion protocol, but he appears on pace to play in the Jaguars' next exhibition on Aug. 22 in Miami. Backup Alfred Blue will likely be sidelined due to a sprained ankle, so Armstead could be in line for additional reps behind starter Leonard Fournette.

Jaguars' Ryquell Armstead: Sits out against Eagles
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Armstead (head) didn't play in Thursday's preseason loss to the Eagles.

Armstead was checked for a head injury during Jacksonville's preseason opener the previous week, so he may still be in the concussion protocol. He didn't lose any ground in the battle for backup work, as Alfred Blue injured his ankle while Thomas Rawls and Devante Mays combined for 18 yards on 12 carries. The rookie fifth-round pick still has a shot to enter Week 1 in the No. 2 spot on the depth chart.

Jaguars' Ryquell Armstead: Being evaluated for head injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Armstead is under evaluation for a head injury after leaving Thursday's preseason contest at Baltimore, Phillip Heilman of The Athletic reports.

Armstead dealt with lower-body injuries during the latter stages of the offseason program and in training camp. That said, he still suited up for the Jags' exhibition opener, rushing eight times for 22 yards and hauling in his only target for six yards. If he's diagnosed with a concussion, he'll be subject to the NFL's protocol for head injuries before he can be cleared to return to the field.

Jaguars' Ryquell Armstead: Nursing quad injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Armstead is dealing with a quadriceps injury but will travel to Baltimore for Thursday's preseason game, Ashlyn Sullivan of the Jaguars' official site reports.

Armstead dealt with a hamstring injury in mid-July but was cleared for the start of training camp, so this appears to be a separate issue. The severity of the injury remains unclear, but the fact the rookie fifth-round pick is traveling with the team indicates he may still have a chance to play Thursday.

Jaguars' Ryquell Armstead: Removed from PUP list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Armstead (hamstring) was removed from the PUP list Thursday morning, Phillip Heilman of The Athletic reports.

The decision to place Armstead on the PUP list reportedly was based on a misread from the GPS tracking his conditioning. The rookie fifth-round pick was held out of practice at June minicamp, but he should be fine Thursday for the first session of training camp. Armstead will battle Alfred Blue, Benny Cunningham, Thomas Rawls and Taj McGowan for depth roles behind Leonard Fournette.

Jaguars' Ryquell Armstead: To start camp on PUP list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Armstead (hamstring) will start training camp on the Jaguars' preseason PUP list.

Previous reports suggested Armstead was expected to be a full participant at the start of training camp, so unless he's had a an unreported setback, we'd expect the rookie to take the practice field before long. Once healthy, Armstead is poised to compete with Alfred Blue, Benny Cunningham, Thomas Rawls and Taj McGowan for backup slotting behind starting running back Leonard Fournette.
